the gender gap closeup when romney didn't talk about women at all and when they obsessed over it in the convention to me that was a sign that women like all other voters are really judging on the most important and central issue in this campaign, and that is the economy, when romney was more credible on that and gained with everyone including women. >> rose: chuck todd, will fact checkers tomorrow morning look at this and examine this and find out and suggest that somebody was either misleading or, quote, lying? >> i don't think there are any lies in there, my favorite part is when, you know, there is that one point where you have joe biden saying 97 percent of small businesses make $250,000 or less and paul ryan insisting 1 million businesses are affected by that and that is they are both ride but, right but want to use different numbers one wants to use raw data and the other percentage to make it look large and make themselves look right i want to point out on abortion, i thought what was amazing with that question about the catholic faith and martha raddatz put it is if it
>> rose: welcome to the program. we begin this evening talking about mitt romney's foreign policy speech at b.m.i. earlier today. joining me, tom friedman. >> and i don't think this is the time when americans are looking after two exhausting and incredibly costly wars in the middle east to be making big foreign policy initiatives. now, that said, we do have v the arab spring and things happen on your watch, you've got to respond to them. and for my money what i would like to do is see us really start to rethink our whole way of relating to that part of the world and i would -- if i had my druthers-- i say this half seriously, half tongue in cheek-- i'd like to see arne duncan, secretary of education, be put in charge of middle east policy. because i think what we really need to be moving toward this there is a kind of race formula. >> rose: we continue looking at foreign policy issues in the campaign with david sanger of "new york times" and richard haass in the council on foreign relations. >> he basically laid out a conditional foreign policy. saying "look, the era where we give
. tavis: on the issue of afghanistan, governor romney did not get around to talking about it in his republican nomination acceptance speech. he did get around talking about it this week. what kind of debate will we have? what kind of a debate should we have about it can stand? >> i think one of the big problems is that we will not hear a debate about afghanistan. we will not hear about the more than 2000 u.s. soldiers who have been killed in afghanistan and we certainly will live here about the scores of thousands -- 10's, 20's of thousands of afghan civilians who have been killed in afghanistan because of this war. what we will hear from president obama is unwinding down. but that is not good enough. this is a war that we never had the possibility of "winning" whenever we -- whatever we think that means this week. the cia has said that, not only is osama bin laden is dead, but the number of operatives in afghanistan is somewhere between 50 and 100 people. we have 100,000 u.s. paid contractors, 40,000 nato troops to go after 100 guys? really? this is crazy. this is one of those wars
. >> when you talk about thee economy, mitt romney was asked earlier in this presidential campaign, are the republicans waging a war on women. he said the president is waging a war on women, because the issue they care about the most is the economy. they care about being able to have a job, have their husband have a job, put their kids in school, have food on the table, healthcare. the real war on women is the bad economy. >> he is terrible on that. he doesn't support the lily ledbetter act, which is necessary to get women equal pay. >> amazing, again. 2012, we're still talking about equal pay for develwomen. >> right, right. if women had equal pay for equal work, we would have $200 billion more in the economy, exactly where we needed with buying power. >> [indiscernible]. >> absolutely. he's not supporting equal pay even. >> yeah. >> so i'm guessing you're not voting for him? [laughter] >> is that a fair assumption. i'm old. >> why? there are people that will tell you, look, mitt romney is not nearly as conservative at his core as a lot of people nominated by the republicans befor
't work that way. we have to find out who's the real mitt romney, the one who talked about that he didn't care about -- he didn't have to worry about the 47% of the people or the one who told us in a meeting that he wants to be the president for 100% of americans. that's the challenge for him? >> have you seen the ad by one of his sons? have you seen that ad. >> yes. yes. >> craig rom any. . >> it's very good. it's very, very good. now if all latino voters were to base their decisions solely on this one ad, i think romney's numbers would be much higher because he touched on the fact that his father was born in mexico, he touched upon the fact that his father wants a permanent solution to the immigration issue, but once they see interviews like ours, once somebody asks him to be more specific about latino issues, that's where he doesn't come through. >> at the end we are getting smarter. the hispanic community is getting smarter and more powerful and stronger because just a few years ago, a few elections ago we would have bought anything and by that i mean -- >> a few words in spanish. >
tell you that the mitt romney i know. this is a guy who -- i was talking to a family in massachusetts the other day. cheryl and mark nixon. their kids were hit in a car crash, four of them -- two of them were paralyzed. the romney's did not know that rid the to the same turf but never met before. mitt asked if he did, over christmas. he brought his boys, his wife gives. later on he said, i know you're struggling, mark. don't worry about their college, all paid for it. mitt romney doesn't tell these stories. the nixons told this story. when he told the story, he said it wasn't the help, the cash help, it was that he gave his time and has consistently. this is a man who gave 30% of his income to charity, more than the two of us combined. romney is a good man. he cares about one hatter% of americans in this country. with respect to that i think the vice president knows the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. [applause] [laughter] >> but i always say what i mean and so does romney. >> we want to get people out of @rty, in the middle-class. >> luis rodriguez, you're the vice-
of loose talk. >> it was on the ascenden as i when we took office. it is now totally isolated. >> and he went where barack obama would not by referring to the secretly-filmed video where romney referred to the middle class as -- >> with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your knockout right way. >> he took that on the chin but little else from afghanistan to syria, medicare to taxes, neither man was giving ground. >> and still preserve the middle class -- >> not mathematically possible. >> it is. it's been done before. >> it has never been done before. >> it has been done a couple times before. >> now you're jack kennedy? >> but there was an under current of mutual respect and when it ended the two families joined them on stage. in the polls they were wondering if this man did enough to restore team obama's confidence. >> 10 years ago indonesia underwent the boly bombings many torturists from pretty much all over the world. survivors have been back to bomby to commemorate the anniversary. security was tight after t
